100_4166 Our carpenters have been busy working on the Prairie home addition we have underway. It is the area to the left with white building wrap in this photo. Last week, in spite of the rather hot days, they managed to complete the roofing. It can be difficult to tie in a new roof to an existing roof. In this case the older roof is only a few years old which made things a bit easier. It has been tested with the recent rains and all is fine.

 

100_4168 The workers are concentrating on completing the roof soffit work. The soffits on this home have a nice detail that includes painted wood trim strips on the sides of the ventilation louver. The electricians installed recessed lights earlier. The large windows give excellent views of the wildlife pond and nearby lake.
